Dragon Blossom is an image inspired by both the beautiful spring blossoms here in Virginia and the recent trip I took to San Francisco, where I attended the Cherry Blossom festival in Japantown.
It started with the idea of a little boy curled up reading in a blossoming cherry tree, only the tree is really a dragon and his reading material is an ancient scroll. Perhaps the dragon is somehow imprisoned as a tree and the boy keeps him company by reading to him?
(Note: I made up the "language" on the scroll, as I did not want to embarrass myself with a nonsensical cut and paste job of any real language.)
Woooow! Wonderful. I want that tree in my garden ^^
So do I. I actually found this on Ms. Diehl's website not too long ago, but now, I can look at all of her stuff w/out having to logout from DA. ^_^¿
Very nice composition and coloring.
This is simply gorgeous!
Oh, AWSOME dragon/tree! Beautifully coloured too, with a light as if dawn is breaking. Lovely!
Lovely warmth and a wonderful double-take when I found the dragon.
